The next 3 weeks
All modesty and coach speak aside, we can all agree that ON PAPER we should win the next 3 games and emerge at the midpoint 7-1. While we acknowledge there are areas we need improvement, what specifically do you want to see over the next 3 games?
-More points from the passing game.. Campbell is in a nice groove right now, taking what the defense gives him and not making mistakes. I'd like to see him take a few more shots down the field to Thomas and Randle-El as well as Moss. Showing, and hopefully connecting, on some of those shots will open up more running lanes and the underneath for Cooley and could make our offense nearly unstoppable.
-Continued improvement from Thomas, Brooks and Horton. These are some games that can really give our younger players more confidence heading into the 2nd half of the season. Thomas is closing to earning a permanent nickname ("P.I." for pass interference!) but he has shown a couple flashes of his ability. Brooks is in the same boat, showing flashes but needs consistency and we've got the makings of a star in Horton once he eliminates the mental errors that the coaches keep noting. Having these 3 as solid contributors down the stretch can make a big difference for us.
-Pass rush, pass rush, pass rush=more turnovers! We are putting a lot of pressure on our secondary right now by not getting to the QB. Taylor & Washington should wait until they are 100% before coming back so they are at full strength for the balance of the schedule. I'd like to see more of Chris Wilson and Rob Jackson in the rotation and if we are up in these next few games, let's dial up some blitzes to get more pressure on the QB and force some mistakes.
